One of the world’s foremost producers of opera, San Francisco Opera brings films of its renowned productions to audiences in Scottsdale through its Grand Opera Cinema Series. Considered scandalous when it premiered a century ago with its provocative Dance of the Seven Veils, Richard Strauss’ adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s play has not lost its ability to shock. Set in Biblical times, this erotically charged opera centers on a tangled triangle: the persecuted John the Baptist, a lecherous King Herod and the monarch’s pathologically seductive stepdaughter, Salome.
